The youth of our city for too long have become background, second tier, and not top priority by our city’s leadership.
It is time for Atlanta to have a leader with compassion to do the right thing and walk hand in hand with Atlanta Public Schools to ensure that every resource needed is provided for our young people.
Atlanta needs a leader who will focus on the next generation. Why? Because their future is our future.
Children born in certain areas of Atlanta have less than a 4% chance of making it out of poverty. This statistical fact is directly connected to the educational opportunities available.

As a new kind of Mayor for Atlanta, this is the type of leadership I will bring with the focus on providing a safe community for every community in our city.
